WHITE LEGHORN COCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
WHITE LEGHORN COCK. In comparison to many other ? ? L«glt«rn-0(7mmmc3 — «' small quantity of hand-fed food for the number of eggs it produces, but this is hardly, to be wondered at considering the activity of the bird when allowed the freedom of a good grass run, where much animal food is available. But apart from its economic qualities, the Leghorn fowl is one of the most beautiful subjects in bird life, its plumage, be it either black or white, contrasting well with its yellow shanks and bright red comb. The white variety is natu rally seen to the best advantage when running on grass land in the country, where smoke and dust can not soil its snow-like plumage, but where eggs are the. main object in view, it adapts itself to town life, and, on small runs, contributes handsomely to' the egg-basket if properly managed.
PICKINGS FROM THE PEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
PICKINGS FROM THE PEN. Gravel should always be supplied to fowls being fattened in confine ment. Encourage the hen to slay with her brood as long as possible ; .they will thrive better. Care should be taken that birds moulting should not get wet, as this is likely to cause roup. Giving the young fowls a free range aids materially Fn developing a strong, healthy constitution. So far as is possible, after young fowls are reasonably well feathered they should have a Tree range.' Ducks should be allowed as much liberty as possible, as they do not do as well in confinement as chickens. In nearly all cases it will be bet ter to push the growth and market early than to permit a slow growth and market later. Much of the disease, with which fowls are affected may be traced for its origin to a neglect in or not keeping the quarters properly venti lated. A Earth runs should be dug over of ten, and two or three times a year the top layer should be removed to a depth of six inches, which can be,...
The Poultry Run. EGG-BOUND FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
The Poultry Rod. EGG-BOUND FOWLS. There are several reasons why fowls fail at times to pass their r eggs. In the case of old hens it of ten happens that the muscles of the posterior organs are. too debilitated to properly perform their functions and lack the force necessary to ex pel the eggs. Old hens, too, are apt to lay abnormally large eggs, and there is always a danger of in dividual ones being so large as to defy any attempt on the part of the ? ' ? birds to deposit them. Old hens being rather inactive, are, unless judiciously fed, more: liable to be - come internally fat than are pullets, and this fat coats the posterior org ans and partly blocks up the egg passage, with the result that any eggs produced by the ovary fail to pass beyond the latter part of the oviduct. Pullets in the initial stag es of the egg-production sometimes become egg-bound, owing to the 'fact that the passag-c through which: V the eggs pass has not become suffi ciently distended, it will be notic ed th...
MATTERS OF ETIQUETTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
MATTERS OF ETIQUETTE/ To be accorded a curt nod, a cold bow, or a couple of. stiff fingers has always a chilling effect upon the re cipient, and it is no doubt to guard against, any such happenings as these that etiquette decrees that, as a general rule, when an introduc tion is made either between a lady and gentleman or between two lad-' ies, each should merely bow in ack nowledgment, and not shake hands. If, however, for many reasons, such as shyness, nervousness, or not being quite sure of the right thing to do, one of them does put out her hand, the other should do the same at once, and without any sign of hesitation, for to ignore the offered hand would be a wide breack of good manners. A lady who once experienced this treatment describes it as being like a douche of cold water. 'It first froze, and then made me uncomfortably hot; and I determined never again to offer my hand.' How differently our late dear Queen Victoria behaved when — so runs the story— she received a young ...
HINTS FOR THE SICK-ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
HINTS FOR THE SICK-ROOM. At anv time the patient feels dis 'piAJ'Mll ust tire most perrect still ness- should prevaii7 'neither should the nurse continue moving about, further than to put the feather ehH of a quill through the keyhole, that when this signal appears no one may attempt to open the door. The room being closed early is im portant for the patient's settlement to sTeep before the night is advanc ed, as it is considered that the sleep which we enjoy before the morn ing commences is the most benefi cial. ' Should the patient not be favour ed to sleep, restlessness soon gives an inclination to moving about, when nurse should soothe and re commend stillness ; but if fever hap pens to be the disease, then reason ing is quite in vain; no philosophy can resist the impulse to change the position; the desire arid hope of cooling the body and limbs, from lessening the surrounding heat by admitting a portion of air, is quite irresistible. In that case, all that nurse can do is to us...
SIMPLE NIGHT-GOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
SIMPLE NIGHT-GOWN. The girl who makes up her own underwear will doubtless be interest ed in the very pretty night-dress il lustrated, which is intended for fine long-cloth or some such material. The neck of the gown is gathered to a fancy beading run with ribbon, that is drawn up to the size re quired, and the full sleeves are also, finished with ribbon-run beading. There is- so little shaping in the night-gown that it qan be run up in a verv short space of time.
The Farmer. MOLASSES IN STOCK-FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
The Farmer. ? ? ? ? ? ? ? MOLASSES IN S.TOCK FEEDING. Flavor is an important factor in ? the feed of stock. A correspondent describes that when feeding a num ber of pigs with kitchen refuse he added barley meal and some molas- ' ses to flavor the food. As an ex periment, he omitted the molasses, which the pigs liked so much, and then found that they did not fully di gest their food. When he again added the molasses these symptoms disappeared; the pigs ate greedily, and the food was quite digested. Salt is another substance that adds to the flavor of many foods, making them more appetising, and therefore more digestible. When cooked po : tatoes are fed to pigs salt should al ways be added, and it is known that a little salt mixed with hay that is not quite as fresh as it might be is an improvement. The flavor - and aroma of a feeding stuff are closely allied, as is shown in the ap petising character of sweet hay. Cleanliness is* another necessary condition of food that, is appetis in...
Cookery. Ginger Wine. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
Cookery, Cinger Wine. To every gallon of cold water add 3ilb sugar, ijoz bruised ginger, two Seville oranges, and two lemons. Pare the oranges and lemons very thinly. Squeeze all the fruit. Put the juice and peel into a barrel, also ioz split ldiMus i \j evci y gajiujj. u\j nm ijuuc fill the cask at first, and stir it well till the sugar is dissolved (two or three days). Then add a little yeast Do not stir again, but in about a week fill the cask and cork it up. This will be ready to bottle in three montha. The advantage of this re cipe over others of its kind, is that all the ingredients are put together cold; and no Gooking is necessary in the whole process. Veal Pie. Cut the veal into square pieces, and put a layer of them at the bottom of a pie dish. Sprinkle over them,' a por tion of minced savoury herbs, a lit tle spice, lemon peel finely chopped, and some yolk of egg hard boiled, then a layer of ham cut thin. Pro ceed in this manner until the pic dish is full. Lay a puff past...
HUSBAND OR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
HUSBAND OR CHILDREN. Many wives,- as soon as they be come mothers, devote their whole attention to the small and fascinat ing new arrival, much to the dis comfiture and neglect of their hus bands. More than this, they see nothing wrong in the course they take ; they honestly believe they are doing the right and proper thing, and are fully justified in refusing to do anything that will take them away for an hour or so from the new little master or mistress of the house. Of course, for the first few mon ths a mother's hands are quite fully occupied, and she cannot devote too much attention to her 'baby; but with tactful care, you can keep baby's father thoroughly interested also in the little newcomer. You will find he is only too delighted to make an effort to be home in time to see his little son or daughter bathe, and to carry the small mor sel to th.e cot. Have no fear that he will not know how to 'hold' his child; na ture teaches fathers as well as moth ers; she is no one-sided p...
BROTHERS AND SISTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
BROTHERS AND SISTERS. TEacn your-u»uoli«.«». s.'r1o like gentleness in men, and that they like to be treated as intelligent hu man beings, not as pretty puppets. If it is done in the right way brothers can teach their young sis ters how to avoid makine silly mis takes. Girls often do very silly things through their ignorance of the ways of the world and lack of judgment. Brothers should look after their sisters, and make it their business to know their men friends. If they are on good terms with each other, a sister will look up to a brother and regard his advice as all-important. Above all, a brother should make his men friends feel that it is an honour to be introduced to his sisters.

MATTERS & FEMININE. WHITENING THE HANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
*M§IAT T m P E MI NIK Efet WHITENING THE HANDS. To have really soft, white, beau tiful hands requires a great deal of time and attention, some judgment, and a naturally good hand to start with. The hands must not be ex posed to sun or wind, and they must be kept -scrupulously clean. It is not enough that the hands are wash ed several times every day; they should be thoroughly soaked in hot water, with some. fine, soap, and when perfectly soft, must be rubbed very gently to remove all spots or roughness, and as far as possible to loosen the ' skin from the nails at their roots. While still wet, put a few drops of glycerine into one hand and rub thoroughly all . over the harids until no more will ab sorb. Then pat them with a soft towel until dry. ^ It is a great mis takq to rub the skin with harsh craih. It is likely to break the sur face of the cuticle and cause rough ness and cracking of the skin. Wear ing gloves at night, with the use of a little pomade or cold cream, will help, t...
